We form IP licensing strategies that maximize value. Our attorneys offer business strategy and contingency planning, anti-takeover defenses, reclamation of intellectual property, and alternative dispute resolution.


Our attorneys draft and negotiate agreements covering patented technology, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets. We help development-stage businesses in-license technology from university technology commercialization offices, founders, developers, and strategic partners.

We also represent technology commercialization offices, businesses, developers, and holding companies in out-licensing intellectual property to provide revenue streams and enhance the value of technology portfolios.

Our attorneys negotiate and draft:

  • Patent, copyright, trademark, and trade secret license agreements
  • Commercialization agreements
  • Cross-licensing agreements
  • Collaborative research agreements
  • Domestic and international marketing and distribution agreements
  • Confidentiality agreements
  • End user license agreements
